Bastion

I know there's a 'What're you Playing' thread... but Bastion truly needs it's own thread. This game, out of all the many many many games I've played, is probably one of the best games I have played in the past five, if not ten years.

I don't say that lightly.

The art style is amazing, the play control is tight, and the MUSIC... oh my the Music alone is so... so stirring! All of this is tied together by this gravelly-voiced narrator who, well, narrates everything you do in this game-world. It's never annoying, he provides clever little insights into the world around you, about what happened, what people used to do here and there... it's an amazing thing.

Gameplay is very-much your classic 3/4 top down isometric dungeon crawler... though instead of crawling through dungeons you're walking through the sky, the very ground coming up to meet your feet as you go and explore. The menus and leveling systems are all very smoothly integrated, never getting in the way of the gameplay itself. Combat has a classic, fast moving feel to it, and as you unlock more weapons and find your niche' it's a complete blast to dive into levels and challenges and uncover the next exciting thing.

And then, when you beat it, (in... say... 5-8 hours, depending on how much you dig into the world), you get New Game Plus... so you restart with all your gear, and get to do it over again.

Yes, it's shorter than a lot of the games we used to play back in the day, but it doesn't let anything get in the way of the story, which takes center stage and refuses to let anyone else come on until it's damn-well said it's part!

If you have a 360, go get it... rightnow. I believe it may be on PS3 now or soon... and mid August all those PC peoples will have it too.

Until then, the Soundtrack is for sale as of today... and you can just open this in a tab and enjoy the moody, head-nodding, twangy... sheer awesome vibes that they composed for this game. Ze link is here...

To my shame, I have to admit that I still haven't finished it.
I'll do it as soon as possible! I promise!

*hides in a corner*

Edit: I decided that I should finish it then. So I did. And it was awesome.
Don't have it 100% yet, but... That'll come.
